Gavel Confiscated

As a member of the Evergreen District Operations Team, I attended various meetings at the recent convention in Vancouver, WA. At our Thursday night board meeting, the president called us to order without the official gavel. He told us that at the airport his luggage was inspected and the gavel drew interest. It was ultimately determined that the gavel was actually a hammer, therefore a potential weapon, therefore it would not be allowed on the airplane.

Storage space was rented and the gavel spent its weekend in the airport. I didn't miss it. I always felt the loud sound at the beginning of the meeting interferred with my nap.

So a word to the wise--when travelling by air, leave the gavel at home.
